This hotel is beautifully situated on the El Esteco winery. The setting in the valley with mountains surrounding and well manicured grounds (with resident llamas) are beautiful (though pool chair maintenance an issue - daily cleaning a must!). Rooms are very large and well appointed. We had an excellent dinner including tempura vegetables, pumpkin ravioli and vegetable risotto (they grow... More

The house, garden, pool is very nice and stylisch! So the expecations for a high level stay were high also! But the major disappointment was the Manager himself. Dressed in Shorts and old T-shirt already his appearance was not in line with the level of the Hotel. He did not present himself or welcome the guests. At dinner he run... More

Actually, Patios de Cafayate is a beautiful Spanish-style hacienda, the former home of the Michel Torina family, founders of El Esteco Winery in 1892. Thirty-two bedrooms with private baths surround courtyards and elegant gardens of colonial beauty in what today is a luxury boutique hotel. Enjoy the peaceful serene environment of this hotel and winery set amidst 1,000 acres of... More

This is a beautiful location, but restaurant should be avoided. In short: Money: After our bill came, we decided to pay cash. I counted it twice (with my friend) and after we left she said I was short $100 and had me pay again. Watch your money here. First time I've felt scammed in Argentina and was surprised it was...

We had such excellent memories of a stay here five years ago. This time we were disappointed. The property is of course in an excellent location if you want (you should !) drive one of the most impressive roads in Argentina but the offer is expensive for what it is, service and restaurant fare are quite average to say the...

Hoorah! - I had to ask - they didn't advertise the fact on a menu or anything, but I was made an omlette at breakfast so I didn't have to eat sugar sugar and more sugar. This Argentinian hotel would get an 'excellent' for that reason and the fact it is actually a delightfully designed place, were it not for... More

Unfortunately the spa wasn't working while my mother, her husband, and I visited but that didn't take away from the experience at all! Patios de Cafayate is an absolutely gorgeous hotel– the restaurant is delicious, and the staff was incredibly accommodating, especially when we showed up to dinner without knowing that you had to have a previous reservation! Neither my... More

Feb 9-11, 2015 two night stay while traveling the Salta Wine Loop. Our room #17 had a king size bed and a large walk-through closet to the bathroom. The hotel is very luxurious without being stuffy-made us feel right at home as if we were staying with friends at an estate. Air conditioning works well in the rooms and is... More

We had three nights of delightful stay at the Patios de Cafayate. Our second floor room was very spacious, oversize tub, overlooking the pool and surrounding vineyards. While the staff speak very little english, they went above and beyond make our stay comfortable and memorable. Breakfast was typical Argentina fare. Should you decide to dine in, dinners were all very... More
